Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap

In my absence I got brave and decided to make my own laundry soap using the Duggar’s recipe! For the powdered soap recipe click here! I haven’t made the powdered soap yet but I do hope to make that next! As for the liquid soap I absolutely love it. It was so easy to make and it smells so good I do believe that next time I will put a few drops of essential oils just to add a little more fragrance. It cleans better than anything that I have ever bought in any store and it is a whole lot cheaper. I can make a whole five gallon bucket for a little more than $9.00. Which if you have ever bought laundry soap from the store you know that is a pretty good deal. I will try and post pictures soon.

Moving

Hey guys sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while things have been super crazy! First our apartment got broken into and a bunch of our things got taken while we were upstairs asleep. No one ever tells you how much is involved in the clean up when something like that happens. Luckily we got all of our stuff back but then we decided to move to a better neighborhood so things have been pretty hectic around here lately. I am in the process of getting my kitchen back up and running and trying to find my camera so as soon as I get that done and I can begin to cook and craft again I will hopefully have some new recipes up for you guys! super excited to be in our new home and to have my loving husband beside me he is great!!!!

The Marriage Amendment!!!!

People keep asking me how I feel about The Marriage Amendment so I decided to answer it on here!!!

I believe that marriage is a holy ordained union between a MAN and a WOMAN come on now people it was Adam and Eve in The Garden of Eden not Adam and Steve and while I have nothing against homosexuals that DOES NOT mean that I have to agree with the way that they choose to live. This post is not about God hating homosexuals Jesus loves ALL people and he died for ALL people but he does say in his word that homosexuality IS a sin. As a christian I am called to love God and love people that does not mean love only the people who are like me and believe the exact same way as me. I know that someone actually probably a few people are going to disagree with me and that is fine you are entitled to your opinion just as I am entitled to mine. My relationship with my savior is the most important thing in the world to me and as long as I feel like I am living in a way that is pleasing to him than I see no need to change my views and beliefs to please anyone else! With that said I love each and every person that reads my blog and I’m sorry if this offends any of you but maybe that is the Lord doing a work in your heart! This is how I believe and I would love to hear everyone’s feed back!!!

 

Pot Roast with Broccoli and Corn

My husbands birthday was yesterday! He turned 20 yay!!!! So for him on his birthday i made him a pot roast!!! Here’s how I did it:

First You need A 6oz. can of tomato paste, a 14.5oz. can of beef broth, and about  1 1/2 TBS. of Worcestershire Sauce.

Combine Beef Broth, Tomato Paste, & Worcestershire Sauce in a large mixing bowl. Mix until smooth. If you’re not a big tomato fan just use half a can of the tomato paste.

Next cut up your veggies I used Onion, Carrot, And Potatoes but you can really use whatever you want to. Arrange the veggies on the bottom of the crock-pot this way they cook in the juices of the roast.

Now time for the meat I used a bottom round roast but it’s up to you what kind of roast you want to use. The bigger the roast the longer the cook time I used about a 2 1/2lb. roast. The more people the bigger the roast you’ll need.

Place the meat on top of the veggies and pour the broth mixture over top. Place the lid over the crock-pot and cook on low for 12 hours!

This is the end product of my husbands birthday meal he really enjoyed it and I hope you do to!

They have an amazing taste and are not outrageously priced which everyone likes. These products don’t have the harmful dies and preservatives. These products are here to stay in my home I would feel good giving these to my future children as well. So please go and check out their website and find out a little more about them!

Gardening

Ok so I want to start a garden but we live in an apartment so I guess I’m gonna have to get creative. I want to do an herb garden but I think I may start out with flowers I keep hearing that they are easier! I know this is a short post but I will have more to come on this subject!

Shift Change

I know I haven’t posted in a long time things have been really crazy. My husband got put on a different shift and things have been so messed up. It is so strange not sleeping when it’s dark I may be a night person but this is still really weird. It is way past my bed time and I am supper tired so to keep myself awake I have been doing some cleaning and testing out some new stuff. In the course of the week I have learned a few new things. Have you ever gotten something really sticky on your kitchen floor well try a little bit of lemon juice. For walls I would have to say a Mr.Clean magic eraser. on counter tops Mr.Clean liquid cleaner is best.I haven’t gotten to my carpets yet but no worries there is more to come!

At Home Nail Kits

Recently I decided to try my and do one of the at home Gel Nail Kits that you buy from Walmart. They come with everything that you need to do it with except for nail glue it doesn’t tell you to use it in the instructions but I did. The kit I bought came with enough stuff to do two aplications one with the white tips and the other is just the regular tips. On the kit it says that it takes 5mins for the gel to set but it took way longer  for mine to dry. they sell the UV dryers at Walmart and they work really good. This is alot cheaper then going to the salon and they look just as good.
